A fine George II period ebonised inverted bell top bracket clock. The case of good proportions and with crisp mouldings to the top has a well-cast central carrying handle, arched side windows and brass block feet with engraved brass sound frets to the front and back doors.

The clock comes with its original period ebonised oak wall bracket with key drawer, a rare feature.
